This strawberry sorbet is absolutely perfect for summer. It is simple, refreshing and cool. Plus anything made with lots of fresh strawberries has to be good!
fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
In a large saucepan, combine water and sugar. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Sugar should be dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
In a large blender, puree strawberries. You should have about 3 cups of pureed strawberries. Refrigerate strawberry mixture for about 30 minutes. Add zest from 3 limes (more if your prefer) and the juice from 5 limes to strawberries (again, you will want to adjust to your taste and the size of your limes) along with your syrup. Blend until completely mixed.
Pour strawberries into a bowl of an ice cream maker and process according to manufacturers instructions. Remove to a freezer safe container and freeze until set.
